The Rosie Project - May 2014 Big Ideas Book Club

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

The feel-good novel of 2013, The Rosie Project is a classic screwball romance.

Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet.

But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father—a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with.

The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren’t appropriate attire in New York. Why he’s never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love: love finds you.

    I liked the book and think some people were overthinking things a bit and missing the point of it. As it happens, TRP cleaned up at the Australian Book Industry Awards last week so what do we know? :P

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
